Buddhist monks at newly established Pacific Hermitage in Columbia Gorge

 This month's show is an hour long production on the Pacific Hermitage, established this summer in the hills above White Salmon and Bingen on the Washington side of the Columbia River Gorge; and which is residence to three Theravada Buddhist monks grounded in the Thai Forest Tradition.  Stephanie Potter interviews the senior monastic there, Ajahn Sudanto, and various other monks and lay people who share why they value having such place of refuge.   The hermitage was established through the efforts of Portland Friends of the Dhamma.
